About the wod
Background: Dedicated to Daniel Shakesby who died from injuries he sustained from a motorbike accident on September 1, 2019.
The crash with a sedan happened on A1034 near Sancton, Bevereley, United Kingdom. Mr Shakesby was airlifted to hospital with serious head injuries, as well as injuries to his leg and hip. Sadly, he passed away five days later on September 6, 2019.
The workout was designed by Simon Murray, co-owner and coach at CrossFit Barbaric @crossfitbarbaric (Beverely, United Kingdom) to remember Dan, who was a regular at the gym’s 5:45 am class. He “always had a smile on his face” and was well-loved by his fellow members.
The rep scheme signifies:
– 4 rounds + 4 rounds represent Dan’s age when he passed away
– 13-7-75 reps for Dan’s birthday on July 13, 1975
– 6-9-19 reps for the date when Dan passed on September 6, 2019.
